Diva Cup question?

I've recently changed all our bathroom hand-pump soap to a castille soap mixture. I'm anticipating using my Diva Cup for the first this week and was reading the instructions last night and noted that it said not to wash it with castille soap - so my question is what type of soap do you use to clean it?

I use dove sensitive skin soap for my face - would that work with warm water?

Re: Diva Cup question?

  • I soak it in hydrogen peroxide or drop it in boiling water.

  • I don't use any soap.  I clean it with hot water when i empty it ("scrub" with fingers) and boil it before putting it away.  Using soap increases yeat infection susceptibility.

  • I also just use really hot water and the finger scrub method and then boil between cycles.

  • I use Cetaphil and hot water; I already have it in a pump bottle (it's what I use for my face), so it's easy.  I boil it between cycles.

  • i use the divawash (seems expensive, but lasts forever...only a tiny drop is needed) and then boil inbetween cycles

  • I didn't know the instructions said that!  (I know they have changed over time, so I wonder if this is a new addition since I bought mine.)  I wash mine with diluted castille soap, and then boil it at the end of my cycle.
  • I didn't know the instructions said that either!  I wash mine with diliuted baby mild Dr. Bronner's and boil in secret at the end of my cycle.
